Even if his face isn't immediately familiar, there's a good chance you might recognize other choice parts of Stephen Amell's anatomy, since they seem to be the main feature on the new CW superhero series, Arrow, based on DC Comics' Green Arrow character, a.k.a. Oliver Queen, a billionaire playboy who returns home after being presumed dead to become a hooded vigilante who strives to right the wrongs of his family and his society.

And the often-shirtless Amell looks pretty darned good doing it, too, and he recently revealed that one of his tricks is to work out before stripping down for the camera. "I do peek at that on the schedule and try to get in a workout," Amell told Zap2it. "I like to give myself a nice run up to a shirtless scene. Physically, it really doesn't make any difference. It's about mentally feeling good about it."

Though that's not the only thing Amell has to mentally feel good about. The former spinning instructor, according to Us Weekly, is also honing his archery skills. Ever the consummate teacher, he even tries to describe what he's learned to his fans — ya know, for anyone out there who's taking up archery.

"You have to relax when you're shooting an arrow. You can't be tense. And that just helps, in your day-to-day life," Amell told Colllider. And about the only thing more charming than Amell's free morsels of wisdom is his personal dedication to his job. "I want to shoot the show for awhile, and then go into archery competitions and see how good I can get," he said.
